Binary System Podcast #79 – WTNV Episode 106 “Filings”

In Night Vale it’s illegal to acknowledge the existence of angels, so they’re out to change that, and you know what that means: PAPERWORK. Also minor riots, dragons, and rifts in the space-time continuum. It IS Night Vale we’re talking about.

After the twins recap the episode they also get into Mystery Science Theater 3000: the Return (and how delightfully creepy Felicia Day can be), the new Beauty and the Beast movie (and how it’s okay if you make a movie that’s only for Disney Fans because that’s a hell of an army to contend with), the new Iron Fist (about which we’ll say very little) and the Hugo Award nominations (about some of which we’ll say nothing at all…)

Review – Bioware Offers A Solid Sequel to Their Popular Mass Effect Series

Review – Bioware Offers A Solid Sequel to Their Popular Mass Effect Series

By guest columnist Rich Kuhaupt.

So, full disclosure, I am a massive Mass Effect fan. Since it was announced that there would, in fact, be a fourth installment of Bioware’s benchmark space RPG series, I became infocidal for any news, rumors or telepathically transmitted information about “don’t call itMass Effect 4.” Now that I’ve had a chance to actually play Mass Effect Andromeda (about 40 hrs) I thought I would offer my initial impressions of the latest offering of my favorite video game franchise and address some of the early issues and bad reviews. Minor spoilers are likely.

2017 Hugo Awards – The Finalists

2017 Hugo Awards – The Finalists

The finalists for the 2017 Hugo Awards have been announced, and it’s quite a list. Between best short fiction, best novel, best series, best editor, best fanzine, and everything else, there are 108 entrants battling it out. And I’ve read…six of them. Granted, those six were all pretty amazing, but I feel like I’m missing out.

This year I’d like to try something similar to Pixelated Geek’s coverage of the 2017 Oscars. Between now and when the winners are announced at the 75th Worldcon in Helsinki, we’ll be posting the occasional review of any of the finalists’ works that we can get our hands on. For each item on the list we’ll also post links to Pixelated Geek reviews (if they have one) and places where each of these are available for you to read (either free or for purchase) so we can battle it out in the comments about which one deserves to win their category.

Click the jump for a full list of the finalists.

Review – Aftermath

Review – Aftermath

By guest columnist thenoshitmoviecritic.

The bulk of this film (originally titled 478) is based on a real-life mid-air collision between a Tu-154 passenger jet and a Boeing 747 cargo jet over Germany in 2002. Some elements of the story have been amplified for entertainment purposes, for example the location, the death toll, the sentencing, and the ending where the son seeks revenge.
